Commented mainman Ashmedi: “We decided to film in istanbul in order to capitalize on the suitable and real scenery and avoid a greenscreen , the location is surreal. Choosing to film in Istanbul also keeps us in line with The Epigenesis photo shoot and recording which were both done here. Rouzbeh the director flew in from Canada today and the whole band will arrive tonight. Friday we will do some pre production , Saturday and Sunday we will be shooting in two different locations. We chose Grand Gathas of Baal sin because it has all of the desired elements, speed, thrashyness, agression, mysticsm and middle eastern ritualistc beats and parts.”
